Linux 2.6.34-rc3

,----[ Quote ]
| Ok, so -rc2 was messy, no question about 
| it. I'm too much of a softie to hold back 
| some peoples work, so my hard-line -rc1 
| didn't work out the way I wanted. But 
| _next_ time! For sure this time.
| Anyway, from a messy -rc2 we now have a -
| rc3 that should be in much better shape. 
| Regressions fixed, and the ShortLog is 
| short enough to be worth posting to lkml (-
| rc1 never is, and -rc2 seldom is. It's not 
| like -rc2's are generally wondeful, this 
| time around wasn't _that_ much different).


Coming Soon: X Server 1.8

,----[ Quote ]
| According to the release plans, the release of 
| X Server 1.8 should take place, and while in 
| reality it will likely not be released today, 
| its release is coming soon. When this release 
| does arrive, it will add a new set of features 
| to the X.Org stack and a number of other minor 
| improvements and bug-fixes.



Linux 2.6.34-rc2 Kernel Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Some 18 hours ago the Linux 2.6.34-rc2
| version was tagged and is now available,
| but oddly we have yet to come across a
| kernel release announcement from Linus
| Torvalds.


Kernel Log: Ceph file system in 2.6.34, kernel and KVM presentations at the CLT2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Linus Torvalds has integrated the Ceph
| distributed network file system and
| released the second release candidate of
| 2.6.34. Torvalds intends to vary the length
| of the merge window from now on. Slides of
| the presentations at the Chemnitz Linux
| Days provide background information about
| kernel and KVM topics. Ubuntu has been
| given an AMD graphics driver which
| cooperates with series 1.7 X Servers.


HostV Deploys Ksplice Rebootless Solution to Boost Server Uptime

,----[ Quote ]
| HostV, a leader in managed Virtual Private
| Servers and Dedicated servers, announced
| today it has completed deployment of
| Ksplice Uptrack, a subscription service
| that enables server administrators to apply
| important Linux kernel security updates
| without rebooting the server.


Revisited: ZFS, Btrfs and Oracle.

,----[ Quote ]
| This entry is a continuation of one
| published in May of 2009. In fact it is
| relating to a comment made earlier today
| which I responded to in brief words. I am
| now taking the time to offer my viewpoint
| on the whole ZFS licensing under the CDDL
| and the reasoning for it.


Linux adds router denial-of-service prevention

,----[ Quote ]
| The recently completed Linux 2.6.34 merge
| window included a patch to eliminate a type
| of denial-of-service attack against
| routers. The "Generalized TTL Security
| Mechanism" (GTSM) is described in RFC 5082
| as a means to protect routers from CPU-
| utilization attacksâessentially overloading
| the router with bogus Border Gateway
| Protocol (BGP) packets. With the addition
| of a simple socket option, those attacks
| can be easily thwarted.


Linux 2.6.34 development marches on

,----[ Quote ]
| Only 12 days after the release of Linux
| 2.6.33, the merge window for version 2.6.34 of
| Linux has now been closed and Linus Torvalds
| has announced the first preview release of the
| upcoming 2.6.34 Linux kernel.


400,000+ lines added in Linux 2.6.34-rc1 kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| But wait it gets better, Torvalds noted that
| approximately 175,000 lines of code were
| deleted too. Over half of the changes were in
| drivers and approximately 850 developers
| contributed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
